Enroll for the Current School Year (2019-2020)

If you still need a school for the 2019-2020 school year, please see details below about Late Enrollment. Late Enrollment takes place July 29 – September 30 at Family Resource Centers.



These documents are required to register:

  • Birth certificate
  • Immunization records
  • Parent or Guardian photo identification
  • Proof of residency (utility bill, rental lease agreement / mortgage, property tax notice, etc.) Please note that more than one proof of residency may be required.
  • IEP / 504 plan (if applicable)

Current and timely proof of residency in Orleans Parish is required. Inability to provide requested proof of residency may result in the loss of your child’s placement.*

Please note: If you choose to claim your child’s seat in the parent portal, you are still required to register at the school. For registration instructions, see above.

If you need assistance accessing your placement results, please visit a Family Resource Center or email oneapp@nolapublicschools.com.

*If residency documents are not in your name, please bring two (2) of the above proofs in the name of the lessee, a copy of the lessee’s photo ID, and a signed letter from the lessee affirming that you and the child(ren) reside in the household. If your child is matched to a “Type II” charter school, you may reside in any Louisiana Parish and must submit proof of residency for the Parish in which you reside. If you are unsure if your child’s school assignment is a “Type II,” contact your school for registration details and instructions. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act is a federal law that ensures immediate enrollment and educational stability for homeless children and youth. McKinney-Vento provides federal funding to states for the purpose of supporting district programs that serve homeless students. If you believe your student may be eligible for assistance under the McKinney-Vento Act, please call (877) 343-4773, or visit a Family Resource Center.


What is Late Enrollment?

Late Enrollment gives families who are new to New Orleans, missed the OneApp school application window, or who need to change their school placement an opportunity to enroll in a school with open seats. Most schools fill during the Main and Round 2 OneApp application rounds, meaning that options may be limited during Late Enrollment.
